Rapid Reader - with Spritz
By Wasdesign, LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The premier app for speed-reading any website, presented beautifully.
Rapidly speed-read any page using the official Spritz reading technology. Connect your Pocket, Readability, or Instapaper account to import and Spritz any of your bookmarks from these services.
Using Spritz, Rapid will quickly flash one word at a time at any of 40 different speeds. This eliminates the need for your eyes to scan the text in order to read efficiently. Spritz provides a reticle at the ideal position in a word to allow your mind to comprehend each word despite seeing it for only a fraction of a second. Read up to 1000 words per minute while maintaining or improving your current comprehension. The average person reads normally at about 250 words per minute, but with Rapid, you will very soon double or triple that speed.

What's New in Version 1.11
Trying to fix some nasty bugs (related to pocket login, and others). If this doesn't help, it will at least get me some crash information so I can fix it ASAP. Sorry for the issues, iOS 8 has been a hard transition!

Best app purchase I've ever made
I had been waiting for an app using the Spritz technology to become mature enough to warrant a purchase and this app has blown me away. I am an avid user of Pocket and the ability of this app to sync with Pocket (both ways, archiving also archives in Pocket) is exactly what I was hoping for. I go through articles at nearly double the speed I used to. I hope Rapid becomes extremely popular so development can continue. Great job! (this is only the second review I've ever written so I'm obviously impressed)
Using a Gen 1 iPad Air. App is designed for use on a phone more than a tablet but it still works great. I would pay double what they're charging to get this app. GET IT!
Great App, works flawlessly
I have been using this for a several weeks now and it's great. I primarily use it with Pocket and it syncs quickly and the archiving feature works as advertised. This app is simple and easy to use and so I find myself using it more each day.
Good product. Currently dicey.
I love this product, I want it to work. Currently with my iPhone 4s not recently updated ios I cannot work the app period. It worked great the first few days and now it just crashes and wont begin reading. I really want this to work. I have faith this product will revolutionize reading as we know it.
